Lex-Care: Grandfather needs one-time help

One case was received at Lex-Care last week from Lifeline Home manager Ashley Gray, who is counseling a widower who needs $750 for his electric bill and repairs to his car.

The man has taken responsibility for raising his two grandsons, ages 7 and 4. He retired after 30 years as a custodian at Eastern Kentucky University, and his only income is from his Social Security benefits and food stamps. He needs his vehicle to keep medical appointments for the boys and to follow through with his diabetes treatments. Once these two debts are paid, the family will be in stable financial condition.
